Nazo The Hedgehog Stamp by JaneSheep Nazo The Hedgehog Stamp by JaneSheep
I rememeber stumbling a pic of Nazo when I was reading about Sonic X long ago. Until I decided to look up this mysterious hedgehog again for more information...


When Sonic X was first announced, the original pilot to promote the show showed numerous concepts that ended up being changed or left unused by the time the series began to air in Japan in 2003. One of the more mysterious concepts left on the cutting room floor was near the end of the pilot - a glowing silver hedgehog. The only reference the public was given to this hedgehog's name, came from a file name displayed on Sega of Japan's website - Nazo.jpg. "Nazo" translates to "Mystery" in Japanese. Everything known about the mysterious "Nazo" is based on the only image of him, as neither TMS nor Sonic Team have formally commented on what he might be.

Then I also came along searching for more info until I saw This persons incredable Animation and story plotline he made up for Nazo.


These are his animation Works

I think Nazo was actually Hyper Sonic.

Just thought you should know that the video links in the description are broken.
Why not just link the originals on Newgrounds?

=| nazo is downright stupid. that guy who made the animations said that fan characters are stupid, even though his nazo is an "exception"... he's not too smart, that's obvious. if he has his own voice added to a character that was never released, made shoes for him, and even a screwed up super form or whatever the heck it was that goes entirely against the way the Chaos Emeralds function, there's no chance of it being an exception. i'm not saying fan characters are a bad thing; i have plenty. the guy who futzed it up is just a moron.

chances are that it's probably a scrapped picture of Hyper Sonic, judging by the Super Sonic design in 2006 (games take longer to make than videos, hence they were probably working on it in 2003) but with a twist of the classic Hyper Sonic (eyes) and the fact that it's not an animated image

...Yes that's possible...
However, everyone has their own view. I like to believe Nazo is his own character, meant to be a evil villian. We're only given one picture, we're not given every little bit of information about what Nazo was supposed to be.
ShonowTH Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
fairly enough...

idk i used to like it until the color inaccuracy in Shadow's Dark Super form, then it all became annoying. ESPECIALLY when Tails and Knuckles transformed using the energy that was already occupied by shadic >_> which makes no sense....

the thing that lost most of my respect, though, is that the guy who made that cute little series slams fan characters, even though he has 2 of his own. nazo is not his character, but there's no proof whether it's a villain, he never had shoes in the picture, and he had to come up with that on his own. then shadic (totally redundant) i dont know why people say i copied him with Shonow. i made Shonow long before Sonic X even STARTED, so there's no way i could copy something that comes AFTER Sonic X does... >_> :chainsaw: curse the poor characterism of others

truth be told, we are living in modern times. it's no surprise people are dumb like that :fart:
MagmaDP Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist

Yeah, that makes no sense, but it's a fan-animation. XD

He probably didn't know about your character, nor did you know about his, when they were made.
ShonowTH Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
that's right. i'm saying that people ALL OVER the place call me a plagiarist :pissedoff:
MagmaDP Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Tell them you didn't know then! And if they don't listen don't keep arguing, it'll just end with way too many people blocking and that's already a problem in dA.
People think I ripped off Princess Zelda when I created my OC, Magma, but I seriously didn't even know what a Princess even was when I made her (I was not a girly-girl like I should've been).
ShonowTH Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
i know what to do in those situations, but yeah... that's pretty much already what i do...

one guy was calling me a noob fan because he couldn't understand how 3 characters using the same exact supply of energy that is already occupied shouldn't be happening, and that the negative power of the emeralds is black -_-"

but i hear ya :meow:
MagmaDP Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ah, okay.

At least it's better than being called heartless because you draw new characters that you think would be great in a game (Because, apparently, according to one person, making new characters for that series means you hate the current characters). I made a girl porcupine Sonic character, and then people are telling me I'm ripping off Sonic? ...How the heck to they see Sonic in a bundle of spikes, boobs, and separated eyes? XD

I think that Nazo is a new form that SonicX made for Sonic (Like Dark Sonic). I think this because Nazo is a hedgehog and Sonic is a hedgehog, Nazo has green eyes and Sonic has green eyes, and Nazo has the same gloves that Sonic does. It's just his eye shape that makes him look some much not like Sonic. If only we can see his shoes, and then we will know for sure.

Nazo isn't an Another form for Sonic, if he Was then He'll most likely be hyper sonic.(even through hyper sonic Would change corlors every second,)Green eyes..... DUDE THAT CAN BE ANYBODY!
Oskarmandude Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2010
His eye shape is because he got's the angry face and his shoes are silver like the rest of his body.
motowolly Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2008
Nice Stamp but that guy has it probably ain't his real name...
KTZNKU Featured By Owner May 29, 2008
Nazo is not the name. The SONIC X trailer was explaining the character's identity being a mystery. There is no "Nazo the Hedgehog," it is an unknown form of SONIC, which is why they told us it was not known. The form is much like Hyper SONIC from the very old game.
